Cat People Art

Stanley Visual Classroom, Iowa Memorial Union, third floor
125 N. Madison St., Iowa City

The internet may have fueled our collective cat-craziness, but it didn’t start it. Edouard Manet, for example, drew a cat on a balcony smelling potted flowers, and Tsugouharu Foujita drew his self-portrait many times with his beloved cat resting its head on his shoulder or sitting on him. See how cats have captivated artists for over a hundred years.

Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum’s collection to audiences in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building! 

2019-2020 Saturdays at the Stanley events are sponsored in part by Little Village.
